Minimalist Perfection

This is where you find pure four-cylinder magic. Stripped back for hugely enjoyable performance – from city block to twisting backroad – the CB650R loads strong acceleration, lightweight agility and sharp new CB1000R-inspired Neo Sports Café style. Add premium tech, plus the choice of riding the first bike with Honda’s incredible new E-Clutch system, and sometimes less really can be more.


The Style of Design

Neo Sports Café New school meets old school; stripped down retro looks exude mechanical minimalism.

Sporty angles Defined by trapezoidal shaping, with the compact seat cowl set aggressively high.

Crisp new angled LED headlight CB1000R specification with aluminium bezel and distinctive LED light signature.

Power for the Ride

It’s all in your right hand. The DOHC inline four-cylinder engine produces 70kW (94 hp) @ peak – up to a free-spinning 12,000rpm redline – with 63Nm torque. For A2 licence holders there’s a 35kW conversion available (performed by a Honda dealer) and then ready for full power once an A licence is held. Because power needs control, an assist and slipper clutch works to prevent rear wheel lock-up through hard braking and downshifting. And, for next level road visibility, Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) activates the rear hazards under hard stop situations.

Make The Connection

This bike’s got your back. The 5-inch full-colour TFT display is all new, operated a by backlit handlebar switchgear with a very natural hand position allowing clear visibility in all conditions. Both have been designed together for easy use, and the screen is engineered to minimise glare in bright sunlight. It also offers full connectivity through the Honda RoadSync app. Available on both Android and iOS smartphones, you can access on-screen turn-by-turn navigation, make and receive calls or listen to music while you ride.

E-Clutch – Next Level Riding

Unique to Honda, E-Clutch brings the fun. And choice. You can use the clutch in a conventional manner. Or let E-Clutch do the work leave the clutch lever alone. That’s it. Setting off from standstill, shifting up and down, and coming to a stop all you need do is operate the gear lever. E-Clutch does the rest – smoothly, instantly – like an expert sports rider. It offers you so much more control, whether you’re carving through a set of corners or busy traffic.  And need the clutch for any reason? No problem. Use it anytime.
